BBC: testing times for school assessment

I was interested to read this article from the BBC in 2007 (thanks to Pete Bradshaw – http://petebradshaw.wordpress.com/2007/01/24/bbc-testing-times-for-school-assessment/). The argument is for a return to teacher assessment. How can there be so many people saying the same thing and their requests go unanswered? The next government answer could be Making Good Progress which at least aims to respond to children failing in the system through one to one tuition. The drawback is that rather than seeking a sampled assessment for judging school performance it may actually increase assessment by testing more children more often and more level thresholds. Again we are left with a system that doubts teacher professionalism.
